Welcome to Real Life
Is to Live for God, to Love others, and to Lead them to Christ!
Our mission as the body of Christ is to KNOW GOD. We make disciples of Christ and not dependents on ministry. God's plan for each individual to LIVE FOR HIM is evident and we embrace that.
Our mission as The Church is to LOVE OTHERS. Jesus defined that as everyone, everywhere, but start with your neighbor. And so we love our communities, our region, and our world!
Our mission as followers of Jesus is expressed so simply: Knowing Him and making Him known. We know Him! And it is our passion to LEAD OTHERS TO CHRIST! It's the greatest decision of our lives, and we are purposed to see the world know Him!

In essential beliefs, we have unity.
“There is one Body and one Spirit...there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all…” Ephesians 4:4-6
In non-essential beliefs, we have liberty.
“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters...Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls...So then each of us will give an account of himself to God...So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.” Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22
In all our beliefs, we show charity.
“...If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.” 1 Corinthians 13:2 (Phillips Paraphrase Version)
Our Four Essentials
Living for God, Loving others,
Leading them to Christ.
